Thirtypages into this book, I had to start over. Nothing was making sense yet, the characters seemed to collide with each other, past and present left me confused as to where each belonged, And I struggled to fight the reluctance of starting a book that seemed quite typical.
Four women start out on very different paths that converge at the same place, Antwerp, Belgium. Fooled by the promise of the proverbial greener pastures, Sisi, Joyce, Ama and Efe find themselves standing behind glass windows waiting on men looking for adventures between the thighs of African women. Each guarding their past like a deadly secret, they live as debtors under a callous madam, giving away little of their lives prior to arrival in Belgium, until an avoidable incident coerces them to share stories of their past and form unbreakable bonds beyond what they ever imagined.
